So he was already convicted then?
yes. it was the sentencing phase in the video
he outburst like that the last time he was in front of the judge
You sure? Looked more like a pre-trial or bail hearing or something
What's the argument then?..lol. the guy's a convicted criminal..sure.. let him be in charge and dictate to the court...good call. At least it's not abuse of authority.
read the title
Cause that's all well-informed and accurate
Like calling the defendant a "suspect"
I guess if you feel it necessary!
he is a suspect until proven guilty.
Perhaps the important take-away is that the judge at least apologized and recused himself. He straight up admitted he handled the situation wrong and belittled our justice system with his actions. Unfortunately while our system is good it also has lots of big problems and this crap doesn't help. Everybody with any common-sense knows we actually have two systems of jurisprudence- one for the elite and wealthy who have good lawyers and one system for poor/dispossessed people who are at the mercy of overworked public defenders. In that sense our system is a complete joke. This guy does nothing to help.
If you don't like America go back where you came from. lol
I love america...scumbags..not so much..
That's too bad about the people who can't afford decent legal counsel after they commit a crime..maybe they should think about that BEFORE they commit the crime. That's not the legal systems fault. Here's a novel idea...DON'T BREAK THE LAW!!..and if you do expect to be prosecuted, so plan ahead!!
Yeah, lets all focus on the Judge who gave this POS several opportunities to shut his lips and told him a few times he would have his chance to speak instead of this POS disrespecting the Judge and the legal system all the while ignoring that hes not there because hes a good boy and most likely has a wrap record a mile long...yeah lets focus on the Judge and not the real issue here...cant fix stupid!
That guy's lawyer could have easily been me. I practice in rural MN and have a private practice but I also take court appointed cases. The thing is, they roll guys like this before a judge a thousand times a day in this country. That is expected. What is also expected is a judge that handles the situation properly. I loved reading all these comments, and found everybody correct in one way or the other.
It is the legal systems fault. What if the person accused is innocent. We are supposed to be guaranteed a fair trial. If your attorney spends literally no time on your case is that fair?
IMO- perhaps it's time to ban private lawyers in all criminal cases and make everybody draw from public defenders. Then maybe some of these rich people that walk would actually be held accountable.
Maybe then the government would take corrective actions.
btw- just joking with the leave America comment. although maybe you would be happier someplace like Saudi Arabia where people have no rights?
Evidently you missed the thread title-
"this judge has had enough lol"
See? The whole thread is about the judge. We are only talking about this because of the judge's actions.
You might be right about not fixing stupid though.
Oh yes, I am right, cant fix stupid and no common sense either
I should move to Saudi Arabia..lol..I'm not sure why you'd post this. You're the one who's dissatisfied with, and is complaining about the u.s. legal system lo-tek., not me. I mentioned that I love America, so where you came to the conclusion to post such a ridiculous comment I have no idea.
Nothings perfect, including the legal system. And well off people tend to have better clothes, cars, houses, healthcare, food and pretty much everything else,.. legal representation included. Capitalism..ain't it a bitch?
I'm sure There's plenty of rich people put in prison..money didn't get Cosby, Epstein, Aaron Hernandez, phil spector and the like off the hook for their crimes just because they're rich.
Now in the case of that murdering former NFL running back, having money bought the lawyers who created the illusion of doubt that got him off. But I think the verdict was more a product of stupid jurors, and inept prosecutors as anyone with half a brain would have convicted him with 1/10 of the evidence presented. That's the only rich person I can name that got off like that, and that case is a ridiculous unbelievable exception. Not the norm.
It's not a perfect system either way, and none of us have first hand knowledge of every case so this is all just opinion.. but I would have to say that most people whether rich or not that are convicted in a court of law are justly found guilty.
They totally overlooked the guys, the rich guys who trashed the economy in 08...................................
oops screwed up that last post somehow. My comments are in the body of the quote above^
Excellent post counselor...not this one..the screwed up one..lol.
Ahh, what do you know anyway?? You are only a degreed Attorney working in this field with real experiences and you own your own practice...hes the expert and will explain it to you, just wait.....5, 4, 3, 2, 1...
